Cupcakes & Friends

It was getting to be awhile since I had produced a batch of cupcakes, and I was beginning to feel some with drawl symptoms. I could strongly sense the lack of sugar in my diet. To cure this problem I dipped some bananas in chocolate then dressed them in beady little sprinkles. After that I whipped up some White Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

And as if the cupcakes were not a enough to make my weekend wonderful- my lovely friend Kylie, from Quaint Delights, was in town for a wedding and was able to spend a few hours with me and make some incredible French Toast with Whip Cream & Strawberries. Perfect.

What a lovely weekend. The sun is shining and I ate some wonderful food in even better company.
